WoW: My Life As A White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine to showcase books we are patiently awaiting.
 
Book Blurb:
 
Angel Crawford is a loser.

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken. 

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue--and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse. 

Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey--just when she's hungriest! 

Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat. 

Literally. 

Release Date:  07-05-11
The book cover alone makes me want to buy this book.  Well, and I am a huge zombie nerd.  I really hope this one lives up to its potential.  :)

Hi, Michelle! Might have been one of the Blogger's glitches where all the follow buttons mysteriously disappear from time to time :) Maybe try again later? :) Thank you very much anyway x
